Ensure Employee Well-Being

Emergency communication can present a variety of challenges, ands specifics will vary widely from company to company.

Keep Customers in the Loop

Although you won't have to notify your customers about every operational glitch, events can still occur in which you will need to communicate the essentials. 

  • How do you plan to reach your customer base?
  • How will you handle the influx of new messages from concerned customers?
  • Do you have the necessary strategies in place to keep your company reputation intact following an event?

Enable IT Uptime

Your IT systems are just one component of business continuity, but they are a major one. 
  • What data backups do you have in place, and how long will it take for that data to be available following an event? 
  • Do your employees have necessary access to applications?
  • When was the last time you tested your data backups and disaster recovery plan? Is it adequate?

Today's small and midsized businesses don't have a high tolerance for long periods of downtime, and many business owners don't fully consider the true cost of that downtime.

  • How long can your business safely afford to be offline? Are there technologies you can take advantage of to continue operations?
  • Does your business have adequate insurance to cover not only damaged technology but also assets and warehouse inventories?
  • Are the right people trained on your recovery process? What are the key roles and responsibilities that need to be assigned?

Developing a BC/DR plan is no easy feat, but it is a critical aspect of running a business. 

The most important thing you can do is get started.
